I think this could be jewelry? Since it's worn like a brooch...
I made a homecoming mum for my younger cousin, who is a senior this year, for her volleyball homecoming/senior night game. I know they're not traditionally for girls' sports and no one around my hometown has any idea what they are but I needed to craft and it made her happy...


with the daisies

and close-up

The mum was attached to an alligator clip and could be worn as you'd wear a name badge. In the pictures it's clipped to a daisy stem. Her mom ended up wearing it to her game and my cousin removed the ribbon I had tied around the daisy stems to use in her hair.  Smiley
I think the whole thing, including flowers and vase, was less than $20 since I found several supplies at the dollar store.

I would've worn it in my hair too.  Looks great.  Thanks for sharing!

Those are incredibly popular around here, and outrageously expensive!

Good job; the one year my mom took pity on me, and whipped one up, it didn't come out nearly as nice.
